Party of Regions’ candidate to parliament Anna German calls the Day of Memory of Ukrainian Journalists “Soviet tricks, from which we should have refused long ago”.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, she claimed this today after a press conference in the Donetsk press-club.
After the press conference, club chief Iryna Chernychenko reminded her colleagues that on 21 September Ukraine marks the Day of Memory of Ukrainian Journalists, who perished for truth.
I.Chernychenko proposed press conference participants to honor the memory of perished journalists with a minute of silence.
A.German rose together with journalists, but, as soon as the minute of silence finished, she claimed that the “memory days” will not improve the destiny of Ukraine.
“Another days of memory or the holiday of independent press – all those are Soviet tricks, from which we should have refused long ago”.
